FRIENDS Backpack Drive

Each year FRIENDS provide backpacks and school supplies to children served by Child Advocates of Fort Bend. This year schools will be back in mid-August. We are asking our members to purchase school supplies for one or more children. Backpacks are purchased in bulk using FRIENDS members’ $40 annual membership dues.

There are 2 ways to help fill a backpack:

  1. SHOP – Contact Brigit Engleman to receive a child’s name, grade and a supply list for their specific school and classroom and check out the school supply bargains at your favorite store

2. DONATE – and have FRIENDS do the shopping for you!
Send your donation of $75 per child to:
Alexis Jackson, FRIENDS Treasurer
7406 Forest Shadow Dr.
Sugar Land, TX 77479

Have questions or need more information? Contact Brigit at


Annually in October and in the Spring, Friends Council hosts a morning Friends Coffee and an evening Martini Night at a private home.  These are opportunities to welcome new members, share the many contributions made by the council during the year and enjoy a guest speaker, fashion show, decorating ideas or other entertainment. 

Join FRIENDS today to make sure that you get your invite to the next event!
